NAPLES, Fla. (AP) — Hurricane Irma’s leading edges whipped palm trees and kicked up the surf as it spun toward Florida with 125 mph winds Saturday on a projected new track that could subject Tampa — not Miami — to the storm’s worst fury. Tampa has not taken a direct hit from a major hurricane in nearly a century.

"Unfortunately, there is no way the United States is going to avoid another catastrophic weather event," Dr. Joel N. Myers, founder, president and chairman of AccuWeather said.
[NOTE: Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said… In order to get out of South Florida (Miami) until Interstate 10 westbound from Jacksonville, one has to drive 345 miles on one half of a tank of gasoline since all the gasoline in South Florida has been sold, and all the gas stations along the way are also sold out of their gasoline. What a horrible plague this is!]

"There will be massive damage in Florida. [It will be] the worst single hurricane to hit Florida since Hurricane Andrew in 1992,” AccuWeather
As Irma approaches, fear is in the water,
spreading with new and viral efficiency
MIAMI — Before the storm hit, the fear seeped in, poisonous and sometimes paralyzing.
It flowed from the TV, a nonstop drone of dire warnings and lurid graphics and terrifying images from ravaged islands. It dominated Floridians’ Facebook feeds — telegraphic reports and play-by-play accounts from friends and family who were packing up, hauling out or hunkering down. WashPost

MUST READ: According to CNN, the dramatic mass exodus from South Florida could become one of the largest evacuations in US history.[. . .] Hashem does everything for the best, whether or not we understand how and why. The Gemara says (Tractate Sanhedrin, 37b) that exile atones for all a person's sins.

This is exactly what happened to the Jewish People during the destruction and subsequent exile of our First and Second Holy Temples. RabbiLazerBrody
AND MUST READ: Birthpangs of Moshiach and Spiritual Epidural: Maybe you'll believe Isaiah the Prophet. He reprimands those who reject the word of G-d and says, "...it will happen with quick suddenness; Hashem, the Master of Legions, will frequent you with thunder, and with earthquake, and loud sound, storm and tempest, and consuming flame of fire" (Isaiah 29:5-6).
